2) Megan bought a book for $12.00, received an allowance of $15.00, paid back a loan of $7.00, bought lunch for $8.50,earned $8.00 raking leaves, and found $2.00. She now has $22.25. How much did she start with?

Set-up equations

1) x - 7 + 3 + 6 - 8 + 1 - 6 = 3

x + 10 - 21 = 3

x - 11 = 3

x = 13

2) x - 12.00 + 15.00 - 7.00 - 8.50 + 8.00

+ 2.00 = 22.25

You solve

3)

Miguel

x + 15 - 4 + 6 - 17 + 22 + 14 = 40

Yoshi

x + 12 - 4 + 33 - 7 = 40

You solve

4)

3:35--plane

2:00--less 2h

1:35--check-in

1:35--less to get to airport

12:00--noon

00:45--less 45 min talking

11:15--leave house

Check for this

11:15---leave house

00:45---45 min talking

12:00---time now

1:35---1 hr 35 min trip to airport

1:35---time now at airport

2:00---2 hrs early for check-in

3:35---time now--

plane leaves

I think in a question 2 the answer is 24.75. Correct?

What about a question 4. 3:35 is the latest time she should leave her house?
